In February 2013, OJSC "Perm HaloPolymer" after the reorganization started production of Freon-14 * (R-14), which allowed to double the volume of the finished product, bringing it up to 20 tons per month.
The global market Freon-14 is estimated at 1.5 million tons per year. The share of HaloPolymer on the world market currently stands at 8%.
"Freon-14 is traditionally in high demand in the near future, which we expect will grow, — said General Director of" HaloPolymer "Maxim Darashkevich. — In Russia, our holding is a unique manufacturer of this product. We supply Freon-14 in the Russian market and the world market leader of industrial gases in Germany, France and the United States. "
Freon-14 is mainly used for plasma etching of dielectrics and production of integrated circuits as the inert gas in the preparation of rare earth metals. It is also used as an additive to the insulating gas in high-voltage equipment, which is used at low temperatures to reduce the dew point. Also, Freon-14 is used for preparing respiratory mixtures when diving, as a refrigerant, fire retardants, ozone decomposition stabilizer, diluent during the chemical reactions, the reagent for Organofluorine products.
* Carbon tetrafluoride(Also tetrafluoromethane, CF4, Freon 14) — a colorless gas that has been compressed under pressure. Non-flammable and explosion-proof.
